Brief Overview

  • A whitewater kayaking beginners course is designed to impart the foundational skills to a novice kayaking enthusiast. The lessons focus on developing basic skills and practicing them in whitewater conditions with the safety of the kayaking river guides
  • This 3 day session includes theory sessions and lot of river practice
  • Once the course is completed, you will be ready and eligible to enroll for our kayaking expeditions


  • Day 1: A brief introduction to the kayaking equipment followed by basic paddling strokes and turning strokes to obtain basic control and balance of the boat. Later in the day we learn wet exit and assisted eskimo rescue (T-rescue)
  • Day 2: Today we go through leaning techniques, bracing and ferry glides. Practice of assisted eskimo rescue will continue. We will do small river run with a class I rapid to complete the day
  • Day 3: Today we do a river run consisting of a class II+ and two class II rapids and all the skills will be put to use. The river run will be about 10 kms long. At the end of the river run we would have a short de-brief and we would introduce the participants to the road-map ahead, to continue their learning in future

  • *Minor changes may occur in the itinerary.
    **Eskimo Roll will also taught but learning it within 3 days is difficult and not guaranteed.
